Arma Hobby has released the first test build images for their upcoming Hawker Hurricane Mk I model kit in 1/72 scale.
The model is said to boast “delicate panel lines” with “imitation of canvas on the fuselage and control surfaces.” Its surface is described as “rich with details like subtle round latches (dzuses) and raised rivets” while the cockpit offers a level of detail “proper for 1/48 scale.”
As previously noted, the kit will reportedly feature open or closed canopy display, an optional tropical version, two types of propeller blades, three types of spinners and photo etched details. The model will also be released in junior and expert editions, with the latter offering cockpit and wheel masks and “significant” photo-etched plates. Decal options will reportedly include “Aces as Urbanowicz, Zumbach, Frantisek and others.”
A “few small fixes” will be applied, and if everything goes as planned, the company hopes to launch sales next week, with shipping beginning in early December.
The images above and below show “the most raw injections, before the corrections.”
